We’re taking your favorite art camp and bringing it to your home! Online art camp is a half-day camp for young artists ready to graduate to the next level, where they will explore art media and techniques in greater depth. The materials fee covers a specially curated art supply kit that is custom designed for each week of camp, which will be available for curbside pickup at the Art Center the week prior to the camp. Each camp culminates with a virtual art exhibition. This camp will be taught by the same talented teaching artists you know and love from the Art Center, who will be teaching remotely using Zoom. All you need to participate is a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access to Zoom. The week prior to camp, you will receive an email with the private Zoom link for your camp.
Curbside pickup hours for this week's art kits are: Tues. 6/30 and Wed. 7/1 from 1-5pm; Thurs. 7/2 from 3-7pm; and Fri. 7/3 from 1-6pm. Due to the holiday, we will not have curbside pickup hours on the weekend of July 4 and 5. The last time to register for this camp is Friday 7/3 at 2pm.
July 6–10, 1–4:30 PM
Art journaling is a wonderful habit for everyone, not just artists! Keeping a journal that contains one’s inspirations, frustrations, dreams, and fears is a way to creatively process everyday life. Tweens will make their own journal with simple bookbinding techniques and will fill its pages both inside and outside of camp. We’ll also encourage tweens to share their journaling journey during camp. In addition to the art supplies in this week’s supply kit, you will need to have the following: something to cover your work surface (newspaper, plastic tablecloth, etc.), 1 pair of scissors, 1 ruler, and 1 small container for paint water (such as a single serving yogurt cup), newspaper and magazines that you can cut up.
